Toners are often misunderstood. Their use is often underestimated, and a lot of people are still unaware of the benefits a great toner can offer.
What your toner shouldn't be doing:
Your toner shouldn't sting or dry out your skin like many harsh chemical-filled ones at the store. This isn't an aftershave after all! Instead, they should leave your skin feeling soft, plump and glowy.
Your toner should also be professionally formulated with an effective preservative to ensure you aren't spraying harmful bacteria all over your face (a big concern in the natural beauty products industry), unless of course you are mixing a fresh diy toner for yourself regularly and keeping it refrigerated.
Feeds skin essential building blocks and antioxidants
Reduces the appearance of pores
Adds a layer of protection
Prime before you paint
By having a great toner in your daily skincare routine, you're serving your skin by giving it a taste and priming and prepping it to better absorb beneficial ingredients from products such as serums and moisturizers. Think of it as a primer you put on before painting a wall. The paint (your serum and moisturizers) will work so much better and effectively after the primer has been applied. Now don't worry, there is hardly any prep involved. No need to lay down a bunch of drop cloths and put on coveralls!
When it comes to toner, more is more
As much as we love the beauty of simplicity, and recognize that there are times when less is more, in the case of toner - MORE IS MORE! Since toner is not a rinse off product, we jam-packed our formulation by loading each bottle with beneficial acids, antioxidants, cosmeceuticals, and anti-inflammatories so you get as much value as possible from every spritz.
A toner that is beneficial for all skin types
A terrifically formulated toner with high-impact and well balanced ingredients can actually serve as a one-stop solution for some people with an oily skin type who are short on time. A couple spritzes after cleansing your face will give your skin a dose of hydration, pH balancing, beneficial cosmeceuticals, tightened pores, and a layer of protection. Is it as effective as a full skin care regimen? No, but if I had to choose one facial staple for someone with oily skin, this would be it. Just like the earlier paint analogy, applying a coat of primer is 10x better than nothing at all.
Our revitalizing facial toner was formulated to be effective for ALL skin types and ticks all the toner checklist boxes.
Facial toner is super easy to use!
Just apply 2-3 spritzes after cleansing your skin and gently pat this fast-penetrating elixir on your face. You will immediately feel the cool burst of revitalizing hydration similar to quenching your thirst after a strenuous day outside. A few seconds later, once your skin has absorbed the toner, you will feel an immediate change in the texture and smoothness of your skin. Hello baby face!

I have been using this deodorant since the beginning of Glowing Orchid! This is the only deodorant that has worked for me, and that I feel GREAT about putting on my skin. This is my first time using the baking soda free version, as even with the original formula, I do not have sensitivities...and I am sensitive to EVERYTHING! I love getting the imperfects. Always a treat!
Also, I buy 2 per year, sometimes I get even more out of them!!! So as much as they seem "more expensive" they are actually much cheaper! I also prefer to apply with my fingers, I find it blends in nicer, doesn't give white marks on my shirts, and lasts longer (on me and supply wise)! I am a sweaty gal and this stuff works!
You may need to detox if you are just switching to natural deodorant, but don't let it deter you!! Just do a nice clay mask on the underarms a couple times a week for the first little bit.... but after that, you're golden! I haven't had to detox in years :)
